Are you submitting your online application for IAS or any Public Service Commission like UPPCS and for this you urgently need to resize your Passport Size photo and signature pic but don’t know how to do it?
Well slowly but definitely, India is adopting e-governance. Now almost all the major Government organizations are accepting job application through online mode. This means that the candidates must be smart enough to scan and resize their pictures for online Form submission.
Basically, most online job submission sites want you to submit two images to them. The first one is your Passport size photo and the second one is the scanned image of your signature. In some cases (like the present demand from UPPCS) you are required to submit one single picture containing both your photo and signature combined. Scanning an image is quite easy given the number of options available in the market. You may also use any good smartphone to take a snap of your image and that of your signature to use it as a scanned image. On Android Market (now re-designated as Google Play), you can find lots of free (as well as paid) apps to scan your images. As such, I am not going to explain the process of scanning an image which is quite easy for most of the folks.

I remember reading the topical issue of Fortune Magazine after the DotCom bust of year 2000 where thousands and thousands of promising DotCom companies went bust. The final conclusion of that entire issue was this :” You can’t expect to sell Shampoo on Internet.”
Well the time has changed now. Not exactly Shampoo, but online clothing stores are making it big on net.
However, this article is not about Clothing Store. It is about the young entrepreneurs who are creating million dollars empire from virtually nothing !
Don’t believe me ?
What if I told you about a 28 year old College Drop out who in a short span of 6 years made her online retailing store as the the fastest-growing retailer company in America.
I am talking about Sophia Amoruso – the owner of Nasty Girl.com ( No it is not a porn site). It is an online store that specialize in vintage (as well as new) clothings for women.
Just 7 years ago (2006 to be precise), Amoruso was a 22-year-old college dropout, living in her step-aunt’s cottage. At that time, she was working at an art school checking student IDs for $13 an hour. There, she started a side project, Nasty Gal – bascially an eBay page and started selling vintage women’s clothing.
Last year, Nasty Gal (now grown up as a full fledged website) sold nearly $100 million of clothing and accessories — profitably.
Though it all appears to be a dream, it is 100% truth.
